Founded in 1982, NOD is the oldest cross-disability organization in the country. For more than three
decades, the National Organization on Disability (NOD) has been an innovator in
disability issues, envisioning, creating and institutionalizing powerful new
approaches to advancing the inclusion of America’s 56 million people with
disabilities. To this day, we remain one of few organizations committed to representing all Americans with disabilities, regardless of their particular condition or circumstances.
Since 2010, NOD has
collaborated with major corporations to develop new approaches to increasing
employment of people with disabilities. With a highly-engaged board of senior
corporate and civic leaders, and a staff with an exceptional depth of
experience in disability employment and policy, NOD has proven itself to be a
highly-effective provider of business-driven employment solutions and a leading
voice in national disability employment policy.
With a vision of helping significant
numbers of Americans with disabilities find meaningful, career building
employment and helping employers know how to put their talents to use, NOD continues
to produce creative, innovative and effective practices in disability
employment and shares them with a broad audience to change public opinion. Our
audience includes employers, service providers, government officials,
policymakers and the media.
Our comprehensive, three-pronged
approach to increasing employment of people with disabilities is comprised of
(1) the “Bridges to a Better Workforce” enterprise that helps companies develop
the systems, people, practices and relationships they need to develop a more
disability inclusive workforce, while also giving employers a forum to build
their own brand as “employers of choice” for people with disabilities; (2) communications
activities that both grow the Bridges enterprise and reinforce NOD’s position
as thought leader. In select cases, we advocate for changes in public policy;
and (3) conducting, either on our own or in partnership with others,
complementary research and development on new products and services to meet
employers’ disability inclusion goals and advance opportunities for people with
